Thanks for the response.

I would've done a CC order, but they are not taking CC orders for the venue in Atlanta. I wonder why it's not set up like The Dead was...I was able to go to musictoday or something like that and order tickets with a CC. I wouldn't be so paranoid but I expect this show to sell out (the venue I'm going to only holds 2600 people).

Did you go to the Oakland shows?

Oh, I see... I was wondering why you would go the mail-in route. Without a doubt they'll sell out, so I understand your concern.

I went to the first Oakland show, and had a great time, though my first review the day after kind of emphasized the negative (I could have been nursing a mild hangover).

The small venue made a huge difference to me, and general admission in a small place made it much more feasible for even a non-pushy type like me to make it up real close to the stage! Have a good time...

We used to use Ticketron... it was like ticketmaster and mafia mixed. They would buy general admission tickets in bulk for $17 and then sell them for $35 and up as the date approached.... anyone ever heard of them?

Mostly I was either given a ticket or bought them from... mobile sub contracting local vendors in the parking lot... when they had pretzels and $1 beers as well you could get a package deal... and some counterfeit shirts.

I had no trouble purchasing for the Tabernacle show in Atlanta with a card. I went to the bottom of the tour dates and clicked on the link to the right and went right to purchasing.

Where did you find that? On the GDTS page it says there are no CC orders for the Tabernacle. Bastards!

Ok, my dumbass found it. I reckon I just assumed there were no CC orders because GDTS wasn't taking them. Bad move. Ah well, hopefully I'll find out something before too much longer.
